‘Creating a new website was an opportunity to take stock and really think how I want to present myself, my business and my offers’

Penny Spawforth is an experienced Alexander Technique Teacher and an NVC practitioner and trainer. She joined Your Website School owning 2 old websites which required managing and updating behind the scenes, and her goal was to have one new website reflecting an updated version of herself and her services. This is her website.

The features I enjoyed the most at YWS were to do with my personal development and the collaboration with different people. I felt I was well looked after and my needs were met.

To be honest, I disliked the whole process, but really appreciated your patience, encouragement and support. Without you, I would not have a website. You were willing to work slowly to support me through the process and made me believe that it was possible. Two years on, I have a growing business with a website that is attracting clients. Even more, I am writing and blogging in a way I would not have believed I was capable to do. It has been an extraordinary process of growth for me and my business. Thank you, it worked. The service was personalised, client focused and totally supportive.

I’ve benefited from Nora and Emma’s expertise and knowledge of what makes a good website. By being part of a small group who were designing together - I could see how different we all were and how Nora was attending to our differences in her suggestions. And, by being given specific step by step tasks and deadlines!
